    how much ram would this need? 1/10 users activates this script that makes 20 posts so with that much traffic it's a lot of executions. Is 4 GB VPS good enough?

    So if my math is right, assuming they are spread evenly out through the day you would have about 5 second between each query.

    Guessing that will never happen, you will most likely have them execute every 2 seconds or so.

    With that, how long does it take the script to run? If its within a second it wont take too much, but if it takes longer you could need allot of resources.

    Though, my best guess you will have a CPU issue and not RAM, so VPS is a bad idea.

    Total Unique - 175k
    1/10 user execute application - 17.5k
    average posting - 17.5k*20 = 350k Post daily

    Humm I think it's time for dedi*cated server... Only increasing RAM will not solve your problem, CPU resource need to be increased also... Check out deals and you may find some thing good.
